I am a Professor of Informatics and Computer Science and the Director of the Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research at the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing. I also have courtesy appointments in Cognitive Science and Physics, serve on the Scientific Leadership Team of the IU Network Science Institute (IUNI), and am affiliated with the Center for Data and Search Informatics and the Biocomplexity Institute. Finally I am a Senior Research Fellow of The Kinsey Institute and a Fellow at the ISI Foundation in Torino, Italy.
Research in my group, NaN, focuses on Web science, social media, social networks, social computing, Web search and data mining, distributed and intelligent Web applications, and modeling of complex information networks.
My calendar is a bit crowded. You may schedule an appointment with Tara Holbrook, our center’s administrative assistant. Or you can try your luck by email, phone (+1-812-856-1377), fax (+1-812-855-0600), or in person (Informatics East room 314).
Prospective students interested in joining my group, NaN, should look at this advice before contacting me. Then, if still interested, they should apply to one of our PhD programs: Informatics (Complex Systems track), Computer Science, Cognitive Science, or a combination. I am usually unable to respond to inquiries from prospective students unless they have already been admitted to one of these programs.
